The Dandara Team's Top Tips for a Stress-Free Move

In honour of #StressAwarenessWeek, we want to address the topic of moving home - moving to a new house is an exciting milestone but it can also be a time of stress and anxiety. However, with some careful planning, a move to your new Dandara Home can be a smooth and enjoyable endeavour. That’s why our team at Dandara has put together a list of top tips to make your move as stress-free as possible.

Advance Planning is Key: Moving house is a process that requires detailed planning. When are you planning the move? Who will assist you? Have you listed the tasks you need to do? Create a timeline and checklist of everything that needs to be done leading up to moving day.


Declutter Before You Pack: A move is a perfect opportunity to declutter and let go of items that no longer serve you. This will not only free up space in your new home but also save you packing time and effort.

Pack Smart: Packing for a house move is a science. Wrap delicate items in bubble wrap or old newspapers. Use packing tape rather than masking tape. Colour-coding boxes by room can make your unpacking process much easier. Remember that Dandara homes are designed for your lifestyle, so plan accordingly.

Notify Key People and Organisations: Ahead of moving, inform your bank, utilities, broadband and TV providers about your change of address. Don’t forget to redirect your post and let your friends and family know.



Arrange for Professional Movers or Recruit Help: Whether you're moving within the city or across the country, having some professional help or some friendly volunteers can make a world of difference. The less you have to worry about on the actual day, the better.


Understand Your New Space: The beauty of moving into one of our Dandara homes is that each room is ergonomically crafted for your modern living. Knowing your floor plan will enable you to decide in advance where large items of furniture will go. 


Pack a First Night Box: Moving day can be exhausting and you may not have the time to unpack everything during the first day or two. Prepare a 'first night' box with essential items like toiletries, a set of clothes, medicines, some food items, and other necessities to help you settle in comfortably. 


Celebrate Your Move: Moving to a new house doesn't need to be just about packing boxes. Once you are settled, take time to enjoy your accomplishment. Throw a housewarming party or simply invite your close friends and family over for a meal to celebrate this new chapter in your new Dandara home.

Remember, while moving can feel difficult, it is also an adventure, an opportunity to embrace new beginnings. Trust your journey and enjoy it.

Choosing Dandara is about choosing the best for yourself - and that's what you deserve after your moving day. Sit back, revel in your new, pristine surroundings, and bask in the certainty that you've found your perfect home in the world.
